The dojo bootcamp gave me a very good overview of machine learning and data analytics. Despite not having a background in computer science or tech, I found the course very accessible and relevant to data science problems in my field (biology). I now have a clearer understanding of the pathway I need to follow for deepening my understanding of certain aspects of data science, relevant to my work.
Having worked and learning some of the machine learning algorithms in Grad School. I never appreciated how easily these can be explained and with immediate hands on usage helps to understand even better. Best thing which I liked about was Kaggle competition.
